“The composition of the FIFA list is a recognition that the best soccer in the world is being played in Spain”

Each of these teams can only be seen on beIN SPORT, America’s fastest-growing TV network, dedicated to live and exclusive coverage of the world’s best soccer and international sports.
The FIFA World XI stars on offense are Barcelona forward Lionel Messi, Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo and Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao. In the midfield are Barcelona central midfielder Xavi, Real Madrid central midfielder Xabi Alonso and Barcelona central midfielder Andres Iniesta. Back on defense voters chose Real Madrid left-back Marcelo, Barcelona offensive right defender Daniel Alves, Barcelona center-back Gerard Pique, Real Madrid central defender Sergio Ramos and Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas.
“The composition of the FIFA list is a recognition that the best soccer in the world is being played in Spain,” said Phil Schoen, beIN SPORT announcer and host. “While there will be honest disagreement among soccer fans over who didn’t make the cut, there’s no doubt that every player who made the list is a world-class talent. There might be other leagues with more history and better marketing, but obviously when it comes to talent, La Liga is where it’s at.”
